The Lyrics

I took the slow intro from his 1975 remake, but the rest of it is based on the faster 1961[?] version.
[slow 1975 tempo]

I hear that clock a-ringin',
I can't believe it's true;
I thought it was only half past two...

[fast 1960's tempo]

Lemme lie back down, can I please lie down?
Lemme lie back down, can I please lie down?
Lemme lie back down, can I please lie down?
Wakin' up is hard to do!
1] Don't take my sheets away from me!
Wouldja let me freeze in misery?
Have a heart, I'm turnin' blue;
'Cause wakin' up is hard to do...
2] Pull down that shade, turn off that light!
I didn't get too many winks last night;
Gimme just an hour or two--
'Cause wakin' up is hard to do.
B} They say that wakin' up is hard to do,
Now I know, I know that it's true;
Don't say that it's 6 AM--
Instead of wakin' up, I wish that I was makin' Z's again...
3] I beg of you, don't shake my bed;
Don't be pourin' water on my head!
I'll get up; away with you--
'Cause wakin' up is hard to do.
B} They say that wakin' up is hard to do,
Now I know, I know that it's true;
Don't say that it's 6 AM--
Instead of wakin' up, I wish that I was makin' Z's again...
3] I beg of you, don't shake my bed;
Don't be pourin' water on my head!
I'll get up; away with you--
'Cause wakin' up is hard to do.
[ "lemme lie back down, can I please lie down" to fade ]
